    i just ordered this from dealextreme.

    i am getting this as a gift for someone with a ds (the old phat one), i am wondering if the gba cartridge is ds or dsl size, on the box it says ds/dsl and the picture on dealextreme shows a gba size slot 2, but the picture of the actual box is of a white 2gb ds fire link, while the pictures shown are black, so does the new white one come with a dsl or gba size linking cart?

    It's another N-Card clone. So you will get what is in the picture you posted, plus the GBA cart size USB writer.

    If it's DS Lite sized, just unscrew the casing and put it in without the front end, It works and it's fairly easy to pry out, plus you don't damage the cartridge.

    I've been looking for a retailer that will send me a 1G N-card in black casing with gba sized usb link for cheap, and I've not had much luck. I wouldn't trust myself to change the casing.
    Sky2k only has white, and dealextreme's tech support seems pretty adamant about not mixing parts.
    I have to say I find it pretty surprising that they're shipping you a gba sized linker for free, with all the brick walls I've hit. Maybe they only have gba sized ones left for the fire link clone set.

    It's a snap cover. I've seen reviews take them apart to show the insides. So I'm sure there is a way of doing it without breaking the unit.
